PHP 4 constructor and destructor

Here is a way to have constructor and destructor functions in php4:
/*
*
* Because php 4 does not have a proper OOP implementation
* here is a way to have php4 destructor and constructor
*
*/
class demoClass
{
// {{{ constructor
/**
 * php4 class contructor
 *
 * @return object
 */
function demoClass()
{
 //destructor
 register_shutdown_function(array(&$this, '__destruct'));

 //constructor
 $argcv = func_get_args();
 call_user_func_array(array(&$this, '__construct'), $argcv);
}
// }}}

// {{{ __construct()
/*
* constructor function implementation
*/
function __construct()
{
 //code for constructor goes here
}
// }}}

//{{{ __destruct()
/*
* destructor function implementation
*/
function __destruct()
{
 //code for destructor goes here
}
//}}}
}

Zend Certification Study Guide and Errata

Finally, after a week of waiting the Zend Certification Study Guide arrived. I was so eager to read it... Started reading the tests (I was really curious about the questions): chapter 1, page 15 first error: Discussed on phparch forum Jason Sweet cleared that out (printing error), but still, I believe it needed a better checking before releasing it on the market, and I bought the 2nd edition... After googleing, I found the Errata, and this discussion started by someone less patient than me... So, now I can continue my reading... And after that, I will take the test.

12th Brainbench badge

It's official, I know how to use Windows XP :D Well, I tested my skills in Computer Fundamentals (Win XP), and passed the test... Too many questions related to windows help system, I guess there were 10-12 question about how to use windows help, how to search, about the results and so on, and this is not my strong point, because I don't use windows help... Anyway, got this orange badge: Until now, my Brainbech Certifications, did not help me too much, here in Romania there are many employers that have no idea what Brainbench is... Sad
